Oh man. Open source is awesome. I dropped an idea in a github issue for octoprint, and it was interesting enough for someone who knows what they are doing to build a plugin for it. Granted, this is about 10 lines of code, but it works great, and I’m sure there was plenty of time spend testing that code to find the right ten lines. I am just so happy with how that worked out, although I unfortunately feel like I want to roll it back a bit to make it a little more useful.
This is one of those cases where I think, “The Internet is amazing!”.
